September 5, 2017
With its silly, glittery costumes and warring stars, this basically does for magic what Blades Of Glory did for ice skating.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 18, 2016
Refreshingly single-minded in its aim to entertain, Wonderstone has no social agenda, no artistic aspirations, no enduring lessons - other than, perhaps, the universality of lifelong friendship.

Flawed, but its affability is undeniable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Since every funny moment here involves cynicism, arrogance, heartlessness, and self-destruction, you never believe the movie when it's telling you how nice and contrite these characters are.
August 11, 2013
...a serious disappointment that squanders its setup and talented cast...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 25, 2013
A painfully tedious and unpleasant comedy completely void of any laughs.

Don Scardino's The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a middling and extremely dated comedy that only gets by because of Jim Carrey's over-the-top performance.

June 25, 2013
A slow, humdrum comedy that would have worked better as a 10-minute sketch than a feature film.

As a character, Burt Wonderstone runs counter to Steve Carell's inherent sweetness. In Carell's hands, Burt comes off as a 50-calorie Ron Burgundy. When he tightens his vocal cords to hit Ferrell's register, the strain is as visible as it is audible.

If the rest of the movie had put much thought into its characters as it did into that final scene, we'd have really had something.

Hot properties John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) penned the script, and while it's another effort which lacks depth and real emotional involvement, they're certainly proving themselves as dependable, if not exceptional, talents.

You know a director is in trouble when you can barely keep your eyes open to ogle a scantily clad Olivia Wilde.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

Carrey is the movie's ace up its sleeve. He's at his frighteningly manic best. If the Academy ever considered awards for comedies released in March, Carrey certainly deserves one.

Normally, this type of comedy would be a fun, forgettable ride. But these days, it feels like a welcomed wonder.

April 15, 2013
Everything that happens after it lets its abrasive character off the hook is completely predictable, but movies with this kind of pervasive silliness don't exist for their unpredictable plot lines-in fact they rely on predictability.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Magic-less.

4 good jokes do not a good comedy feature film make.

March 29, 2013
The cast members can't elevate this subpar material, although they do showcase an impressive array of sequined costumes and crazy wigs.
March 28, 2013
One of the most disappointing aspects of the whole thing is that you really want to like the movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 26, 2013
A sweet film with a message of never giving up on your dreams, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" gets by on the magic of a game cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
